Gift Box, Card, and Envelope Set

Hi everyone!  I have a pretty little gift set made with Momenta cardstock and embellishments to share today.  I created this set to send to a special someone in my life who has been going through some difficult times.

I layered some of the pretty pinks and purples from Momenta's Vibrant Textured Cardstock Pad and then embellished the pieces with dimensional butterflies from the Emily's Garden and Family Forever collections.  I love how so many of Momenta's collections can be mixed and matched!
If you look closely at the envelope as well as at the "Thinking of You" sentiment on the card, you might be able to see that the cardstock there is embossed with dots.  The embossed cardstock is one of my favorite Momenta products.

For a list of supplies used, visit my post on the Momenta blog.

I will be filling the box with some goodies and sending it her way this week.  Hopefully it'll bring a smile to her face :) 

Thanks for stopping by!

Incredible Beauty

Hi everyone, first here's a little reminder about a big contest:

Don't forget about the Momenta Design Your Own Sticker to Win contest on facebook.  The prize is HUGE... a $250 shopping spree at momenta.com and $100 cash!  

I have a layout to share that I created recently for Momenta with their fun Kaleidoscope collection.

Kaleidoscope is loaded with happy colors, girly patterns, and pretty flowers... perfect for my little girl.

Here's a little tip for turning your flat stickers into dimensional embellishments: Turn the flat sticker over and sprinkle a small amount of baby powder onto the sticky part of the sticker.  This will cover up the adhesive, essentially turning the sticker into a die cut.  Then simply add your foam tape or pop dot, curl the edges of the sticker upward, and adhere to your page.

Okay now get working on your contest entry!! I'd be so happy to see one of my blog friends win that huge prize :)

Thanks for stopping by!

My Little Shoebox July Sneaks

Oooooh I have been having a lot of fun creating for My Little Shoebox for July.  I got to play with one of my favorite MLS collections, and, as part of a product swap I got to play with some incredibly fun bling and flowers!

Here are some sneaks of what I've been up to:

Can you guess which company MLS swapped with this month?? :)

For the Love of Cake! (and a Giveaway Reminder!)

I have a two-page layout up on the My Little Shoebox blog today using the adorable Sew Cute collection!

I'm normally not a two-page layout person, but I wanted to scrap all of these photos from Allison's 1st birthday party and didn't want to shrink them down small enough to all fit onto one page.

Thanks to Becky Fleck's PageMaps I didn't have to struggle like I probably otherwise would have with coming up with a two-page design.  Speaking of her PageMaps, did you see the July maps that she released today?  They're wonderful, as always.

Giveaway Reminder...  My Little Shoebox is striving to reach at least 5000 "likes" on facebook.  There are currently approximately 4100 "likes", and we know there are way more fans than that.  Will you help to find them?  The sooner the goal is reached, the sooner MLS will be giving away some of the brand new collections to some lucky fans!
